In-depth research article on selling beef cattle to feedlots that don't meet their specification and how producers are losing out.

This research article focuses specifically on how beef cattle producers can target feedlot specifications by breeding and feeding their cattle to meet those specifications without adding unnecessary inputs. Higher returns can be obtained by simply creating more focused management practices around grazing, feeding and herd management. Far too many producers are losing money by sending in over weight cattle and receiving a lower return.
